Frequently Asked Questions
What do the dots on the far right side of the display indicate (one is solid black the other is a circle, one on top of the other)?
The circle indicates that Daylight Savings time is ON. The black dot is the battery indicator. When it flashes, the battery is getting weak and needs to be plugged in to recharge it. This would be if it is unplugged for extended periods of time.
Is the battery replaceable, and if so, what kind is it?
The battery is: Troily 1.2 volt 80mAh Ni-MH button battery There may be different battery manufacturers used depending who got the battery supplier contract on that batch. The important info is the size and power. The battery has a connecting "fork" so you will need to solder 2 points to replace the battery, it's as easy as soldering gets. I believe I've seen the battery available for about $1.50 on the web. Do not open the unit unless you are prepared to replace the solder-installed battery. There is nothing in the unit that should be played with, and there is a lead that is easy to break that will require more soldering should you break it.
Can it be programed to stay on for seconds instead of one minute intervals?
There is a modification to the timer printed circuit board that allows it to be programmed in seconds. Mod involved soldering (essentially jumping) two pairs of pads on the timer board.
